Getting there...just an hour fun ride
Kakani is an hour by car or motorcycle from Kathmandu, and is a long, though rewarding, bicycle trip. There are a number of restaurants along the route. The road is sealed almost all the way and it is a fairly gentle climb downhill all the way home!
Kakani is 3.5km off the main Trisuli road; turn right at the crest of the hill, before the Kaulithana police checkpoint.
For Kakani, catch a Kakani, Ranipauwa, Trisuli Bazaar or Dhunche bus from counter 30 of the Kathmandu bus station, get off at Kaulithana (Rs 50) and walk the 3km uphill to Kakani.
